In Celebration of

Gordon Bengamin Bull

May 9, 1958 -  August 11, 2019

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Gordon Bull. Surrounded by his family, Gord peacefully slipped away at Credit Valley Hospital on Sunday, August 11, 2019 at the age of 61, after a long battle with cancer. Predeceased by his parents Fred and Betty. Loving father of Shawn. Dear brother of Violet, Dianne, Harold and John. He will be greatly missed by extended family and friends. The family would like to thank the staff at Credit Valley Hospital and the Sherway Oncology department for years of support, care and encouragement. His infectious smile and wit could always bring a smile and chuckle to others in his presence. Cars were his passion, through his profession as a mechanic, a hobby of race cars and an appreciation of vintage models. As for sports, he played hockey as a youngster, coached his son in baseball as a young man and continued to enjoy many sports as a fan throughout his life. The family will receive friends at Turner Porter – Neweduk – Erin Mills Chapel for a visitation on Tuesday, August 20 at 2pm, followed by a service at 3pm. The family invites everyone to stay for a reception following the service at the Chapel. Donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated.

I am fortunate to have shared a large part of my life with Gord. We grew into adults together,spent many vacations travelling across Canada and the US, experienced life and family and shared the love of our son, Shawn. We have stayed in touch even after we went our separate ways. I was privileged to be able to share with him the last 6 months and help Gord and Shawn through these trying times. You will always hold a special place in my heart as the witty, smiling man that could bring a smile to my face. Our son is so like you, I don't have to look far to recall a memory. Louise

Unlike many of our friends and contemporaries, growing up we five siblings were lucky enough to spend a great deal of time on our grandparents farm in Caledon. We got a up-close look at now, vintage, farm equipment, some of which wouldn’t have looked out of place in a medieval torture chamber – the huge mower with the 10 foot cutting blade comes to mind. And we also got a hands-on introduction to a variety of life stock – cattle, horses, and chickens.

We skated on the barnyard pond and tobogganed down the hill near the apple orchard in winter.

But nothing compared to the times when Grampa let Gord, Dianne and I “ride” in the back of big, red, 1949 Mercury panel truck. Actually, “ride” was a bit of a misnomer – everything in the back of the truck had been ripped out – seats, interior panels, shelves – everything, so we didn’t so much ride in the back of the truck as bounce off the floor, walls, back door, and side windows. It was awesome!

Gord, I always wondered if that red panel truck was the reason the first pick-up truck you ever bought was red.

I hope so

Gord - Having been a long time close friend of mine since high-school you will be truly missed. You showed great strength, courage and determination during your lengthy struggle with cancer. Through thick and thin you managed to maintain a positive outlook on life. You won many a battle over the last 7 years but unfortunately cancer took it's toll at the end. Your pain and suffering that intensified greatly over the last two years is now over and you are in a better place. Rest in peace.
